44 will be louder because it is bigger and allow better boost control.

Do you have an aftermarket turbo?? If not, why would you externally gate it?

Better boost control, granted you will not see as much gains with the stock turbo as you would with a bigger one.

Personally, I just think the $$ could be better spent, but to each his own

The 38 has a higher pitched sound (same exhaust exiting a smaller diameter opening). It's harsher sounding in my opinion. I have a 44mm on my 20g and I would never go back to an internal wastegate.

Also, the 38mm is more likely to leak because it is a gasket flange vs the v band flange of the 44mm.
